For a decade, the Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race has been run as a Category Two race but this year, there has been the significant move to a Category Three uprated entry requirement. The Notice of Race sets out in careful details what this actually means to prospective yacht owners but to fully understand the requirements, the document must be read in conjunction with the Special regulations.
Queensland Cruising Yacht Club is thrilled to announce that the start of the 2017 Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race will, for the first time, be live streamed in a full visual broadcast available for free to anyone with an internet connection.
After further meetings yesterday with Gladstone Mayor Matt Burnett and The Gladstone Yacht Club we are excited to confirm that with Gladstone Regional Council support, plans for a Welcome 'Yachties' function are now locked in and progressing well.
The event will take place on Easter Sunday at the Gladstone Yacht Club, commencing with breakfast at 7am and live music from mid-morning until late. There will be family friendly activities and depending on the weather, the official presentation of trophies will take place throughout the day.
